Thats another part I've been floundering back and forth with. Anandtech has a pretty favorable review of the Freezer Pro 7 (
AnandTech: Arctic Cooling Duo: Alpine 7 & Freezer 7 Pro Attack Value
) which led me to believe that it was probably adequate for my needs since I'll have pretty good case airflow with the TJ09 and fans on the ram etc. I don't really know though since I haven't done any overclocking.. I imagine the Ultima 120 would give my CPU etc. a longer life due to lower temps? I'm not concerned with getting a huge overclock.
Thanks everyone for your input, its greatly appreciated!
